Hi all! As many of you know, I started working for an NGO called Wishes and Blessings & every day I thank my lucky stars for ending up with THE MOST meaningful job ever! I am running and raising funds for Wishes and Blessings in the ADHM (Airtel Delhi Half Marathon) 19<sup>th</sup> November 2017, as their end goal, raising money for an old age home, hits close to home!
I lost my grandfather when I was 11 years old and coming from a broken family, he raised me like his own daughter. Bribing me with halwa at 4am to make me study for exams, or driving all the way, to the other end of Delhi to get me the yummiest chole batura. He had a comfortable, fun-loving, and caring family life; which is why I want all grandpa’s to feel the same, when they’re nearing the end!
Doing some basic research on old and abandoned women and men in our country, I feel that Wishes and Blessings is not only raising money for a noble cause but a NECESSARY cause! I want everyone to take a moment and remember their precious memories with their grandfathers and grandmothers or mothers and fathers, to dedicate this run or donation in their honor! I am requesting everyone to help me #adoptagrandpa #adoptagrandma to give them a dignified and deserving end!
